Kings Park ALS Challenge

Written By: KPN - May• 21•15

On Thursday, May 28, 2015, Kings Park student leaders will be gathering at the high school to present an ALS fundraiser challenge to the Kings Park community and surrounding districts.

The challenge is for the community to take the “Ice Bucket” challenge to support patients stricken with ALS and to donate whatever they can comfortably afford to the Ride for Life foundation.

The goal will be to raise enough money to purchase a new van with a lift that can be shared by the Ride for Life foundation and their patients stricken with ALS.  The students will keep the challenge open until next May when the Ride for Life foundation will once again be visiting Kings Park High School.

It is the students’ hope that at this time they will donate the van to the charity.  The student challenge will take place at 10:00 AM on Thursday, May 28th, 2015.
